Worst/Best FFP Names?

Fri Apr 29, 2005 7:11 am

Today, I received my FlyingBlue Ivory Status Card, and I have to say that I personally like the name "Ivory Status" for a FFP card very much. It sounds very classy and not as boring as "Blue Status" or something similar on other FFPs.

On the other hand, the name "FlyingBlue" in my opinion is not very creative... names like "LanPass" or "Executive Club" sound much better.

What are, in your opinion, the best/worst names for FFPs / status cards?

AviancaPlus...Why did they change it again from Privilegios! The name was so classy!

also, AAdvantage is very pathetic.

Names such as Skymiles, FlyingBlue and AeroPlan are great.

I think TE frequent flyers are called Monoliths.   



Actually, I know they're called Amber Miles, but it sounds weak.

Before our national carrier (JP) joined Starr Alliance, FFP was named Privilege Club and i liked it... now it is boring LH's Miles & More.

I think "Miles & More" (LH) is a great idea - says it all!

SkyMiles (DL) sounds good and fits, but is not very creative...

Names I like:
TrueBlue (B6) - good name, too bad the program is weak.
Rapid Rewards (WN) - gets the point across, although with the end of double-credits for on-line booking, the name sort of rubs it in a bit.
Dividend Miles (US) - I like the "stock market" motif
FlightFund (HP) - again, sort of a cool financial-market sound

Names I'm Ambivalent About:
AAdvantage (AA) - a little clumsy, but fits into the overall "AA" marketing scheme OK (although there's limits to that - "TrAAin" just grates on my nerves for some reason)
SkyMiles (DL) - good, but a little plain
Mileage Plus (UA) - blah, and what's the "plus"?
Miles and More (LH) - same issue, what's the "more"? Words like "more" and "plus" just don't say anything, really.
Qantas Frequent Flyer - gets the point across, but geez guys, could you have at least tried?
Midwest Miles - yawn!

Names I Dislike:
WorldPerks (NW) - it sounds like it should have something to do with coffee, not flying.
OnePass (CO) - means nothing, and sounds like it's a toll system for the highways, like EZ-Pass.
A+ Rewards (FL) - clumsy, it just doesn't roll off the tongue well.
Executive Club (BA) - boooorrrrriiinnnnggggg!
EarlyReturns (F9) - Sounds like an election reporting website, or post-Christmas shopping, or something. Inspired by "Rapid Rewards", perhaps?

I like AAdvantage, it is the best play on words I guess you would call it there is in my opinion.

I agree completely. One of my pet-peeves is when AA puts "AA" in everything. Makes me want to KILL them! "TrAAin".. Dumb AAss'!

The "more" means in fact less and less.  flamed 

CSA's OK Plus is really dull.

I like Korean's "Morning Calm" although I admit it's kinda strange name for a ffp and whichever airline chose the name "Aeroplan" for its ffp.
